Frequently Asked Questions

How is the Voters List prepared?

The Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) is responsible for collecting the information of residents in Ontario (name, date of birth, citizenship and school support) in order to create a Preliminary List of Electors for municipal and school board elections.

MPAC collects resident information through a database that residents can access by logging into voterlookup.ca. This helps ensure that each municipality has the most accurate information possible for the 2022 Municipal and School Board Elections.

The Voters List is prepared in three steps:

  1. A preliminary list is created by the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) based on data it keeps on home ownership and tenancy.
  2. The preliminary list is sent to the municipal clerk after a by-election has been called or in advance of a regular election which occurs every 4 years. The clerk can correct any errors on the list, and the corrected list then becomes the Voters List.
  3. Changes can be made to the list. If you are not on the Voters List, or if your information is incorrect (for example, you have moved and may be listed at a former address), you may apply to have your name added or your information corrected. This may be done until the close of voting on the final day of voting in a regular election or by-election. You may have your name added to the Voters List at the voting place. You may be asked to show identification to establish that you are eligible to vote. For more information about getting on the Voters List, please call 705-739-4220 Ext. 5500.
Who am I voting for?
What ward​ do I live in?
I have voted in previous municipal elections and I live in Barrie. Should I still check to see if my name is on the 2022 Municipal Election Voters List?
What type of assistance is available to the visually impaired?

The size of the text on ballots on the City of Barrie’s voting equipment is larger than a normal ballot. In addition, an elector can also request an “audio ballot.” The elector will utilize a set of headphones to follow the audio prompts to select their candidate(s) either by touching the screen next to the candidate’s name or by using the Braille-embossed navigation buttons located below the screen.
